    Default Redlining

    This is pretty bad.



    Looking at those red lined VU meters make me wonder how many speakers this guy has blown.

    Most Dubstep DJing I've seen seems to redline. Even the POV I've seen on youtube has Skrillex doing it but guys like Fatboy Slim avoiding it.

    Pioneer mixers, from what I've seen have a lot more red in the actual vu scale, so you'll be tipping into the red even in a well balanced mix, but his levels were completely pushing out the top... I'm sure there was a sound engineer somewhere between his mixer and the speakers?

    Pioneer mixers stop metering at around 10db, but have 18db of headroom and an attenuator. You have to literally try to make them clip, and Im pretty sure it didn't clip in that video..

    Looks (and sounded like) he was doing his best to make it clip.

    The sound engineers have it all handled. They would never let the speakers blow at a show, unless they were careless.
